Rahul Jakharia, Manager - Equity Sales - SuperTrader, helped launch Sharekhan Research Podcasts and Research on Sharekhan app

July 7, 2022

COVID-19 forced companies all over the world to send their employees home to work remotely. When Sharekhan implemented the work from home policy for its staff, the SuperTrader team found it challenging to offer research advice to the Branch Network and clients. Under the leadership of Mustafa Pardiwala, Segment Head – SuperTrader, they brainstormed, took feedback from the branches and came up with the idea of podcasting research. The idea was translated into reality by Rahul Jakharia, Manager – Equity Sales – SuperTrader. He collaborated and coordinated with five other teams, including Research, Content, Video, Brand & Communications and Social Media teams, to create this product. Sharekhan Research Podcasts was launched on April 5, 2021 to offer research advice in byte-sized format. More than 380 podcasts have been conducted till date including those under the Daily 3R Research, Weekly Market Guide and Flash IPO categories.

Always eager to take on new challenges, Rahul also spearheaded the project to launch Research on Sharekhan app. With over 50 lakh downloads, it was a no brainer that the app should offer our in-house research to all users at their fingertip. When presented to the management, the idea was approved on priority. Rahul coordinated with the app developers, the Digital Asset team and research analysts to offer the new feature on the app. In April 2022, Sharekhan officially released the app version where all our research spanning equities, derivatives, commodities and currency across time frames were made available. Rahul is also working with Avinash Rathod, Equity Sales – SuperTrader, on the Wisdom Series, an informative video series started by the SuperTrader team for the Branch Network. This is Rahul’s success story. Read it and get inspired to push the envelope.

Internal Communications Team (ICT): Congratulations on being nominated for Sharekhan Success Stories! How does it feel to be recognised for your achievements?
Rahul Jakharia (RJ): It feels great. Recognition always motivates. Sharekhan's work culture of teamwork, work autonomy and openness has made this feat possible.

ICT: Your projects required you to collaborate with many teams, did you face any challenges?
RJ: Initially, co-ordinating with the different teams was a challenge as I was working from home. But gradually, it all ironed out. Also, as we were venturing into new areas, we had to start from scratch, learn new things and processes. But it has been a very good learning experience.

ICT: Your message to the rest of the Sherus?
RJ: My message to Sherus is that market dynamics are changing and competition is intensifying. We need to evolve, innovate and adapt to the changes to succeed. As Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, “The only constant in life is change.”
